The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 to be released on 17/04/2012
“The Xbox 360 version is a complete adaptation of the game to the new platform, we’ve rewritten the code so it feels native to the console. This latest version of The Witcher 2 has been expanded in many ways, and some experts believe it to be one of the best-looking games ever to make it to consoles,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED Studio.
Gameplay has been extended through the addition of new quests and locations. The Witcher 2’s intriguing plot is now even more complex thanks to the introduction of major new NPCs who intensify the struggle for power in the Northern Kingdoms.
Other enhancements include the game’s user interface, which has been revamped to provide for better control on the Xbox 360, while new targeting, camera and control systems will give players full control of the witcher during the game’s dynamic and tactically rich combat sequences.
“PC users who already own the game will be happy to learn that they will be able to download all the added content free of charge. At the same time, the Xbox 360 version will incorporate all DLCs and upgrades made available thus far for the game’s original platform (including the ‘Arena’ arcade mode and Tutorial that were part of the latest and richest PC version),” added Badowski.

so it retained the photorealism of filmed footage, but you could still lean in and around and everything would shift with perspective. (49 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: I saw a few recent 360 cameras being advertised as VR cameras and they're 2D. I think 360 video is pretty cool in general though. (50 minutes ago)
sony did quite a cool thing with a violin solo guy where they filmed it all with 3D cameras. but then converted all the elements into a 3D scene running in unity. (50 minutes ago)
I can kinda imagine VR in something like Battlefield being pretty incredible too but I'm not sure how well that would work with most people's stomachs. (51 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: yeah, i can't say i've seen any though. even the stuff on youtube is stereoscopic. it just requires a fixed head position. no leaning forward etc. (51 minutes ago)
it can even stay third person, seeing as bound and the playroom VR platformer work really well. apparently FROM are making something for VR now though. i'm hoping for a new kings field. (53 minutes ago)
Getting annoyed at people marketing 2D 360 video as "VR" though.. that's not good enough. It's cool, but it's not good enough. (54 minutes ago)
